I connect through metrocast.net and have no such delays. I use speakup

reason I figure speakup is cleared and two places to look at are the
local computer and AT&T's u-verse network. What were the results of the
last clamav scan and was that up-to-date and when was that done? When
was the system with speakup last updated? If you're clear on those
counts, then and only then would I approach u-verse and complain about
